Up to Speed

Your kids may not be able to drive, but you need to give them a lesson about cruising the road.

Riding a bike is a carefree summer activity, but with it comes responsibility. You may not know this but bike riders must follow the same traffic laws as motor vehicles.

Blowing a stop sign in Stevens Point can cost you $101.40. The law also requires you use hand signals and drive with traffic and not against it. If you plan to drive at night, be prepared to use a light or pay a fine.

But before you and your kids pedal away, make sure to wear a bike helmet. It's not required by law, but they're strongly recommended for safe biking.
